Quickie – Jeurys Familia’s warmup song October 19, 2015

Every time I’m at the park, I hear people asking what Jeurys Familia‘s warmup song is. Jeurys jogs out to Don Omar’s Danza Kuduro, which was covered by Lucenzo and Pitbull in English as “Throw Your Hands Up.”

This page from Happy Hour Spanish seems to be a solid translation of the lyrics.

Once he reaches the mound, Jeurys warms up to Lenny Kravitz’ “Are You Gonna Go My Way.”

Though Jeurys allowed his first hit of the postseason last night, he’s got four saves in 6 1/3 innings pitched. (He saved games 1 and 5 of the NLDS as well as game 1 of the NLCS; Familia definitely saved last night’s game, coming into a 4-1 game and pitching a scoreless inning.)

It was nice to see Tyler Clippard from the pen, since he hadn’t pitched since October 13; Addison Reed hadn’t pitched since the 12th. Jonathon Niese made a crucial one-out appearance and has a 27.00 K9 this postseason. It’s awesome that Bartolo Colon is nailing it in his relief role, but fantastic that the deep bullpen is still playing its role.
